Found March 20, 2013 on Rumors and Rants:
Derek Jeter’s recovery from a broken left ankle was going as smoothly as could be expected so far this spring, until a hiccup on Tuesday. The New York Yankees shortstop and captain was removed from the team’s lineup on Tuesday for “precautionary reasons” because his surgically repaired ankle was “stiff.” The 13-time All-Star was supposed to play his first road spring training game against the Philadelphia Phillies, but instead opted out. Jeter broke his ankle during Game 1 of the 2012 American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers and didn’t play his first spring training game until March 9. He is 3 for 11 at the plate so far. Jeter said the following about baseball’s most talked about ankle: “It’s just stiff, but it’s not in the part that I broke; it’s around it. I was told I’m going to feel it around the ankle because I was in a boot for so long. It takes time to strengthen. It’s normal just have to deal with it and move on.” Jeter still claims he’ll be ready
